Voting intentions poll shows CON 25% (-4), LAB 38% (0), LD 11% (0), UKIP 15% (+1), OTHER 10% (+1)
The Conservatives had a poor week as they dropped four points in the first full Kantar Public poll since the Eastleigh by-election. This puts them at 25%; which is the lowest level yet recorded by Kantar Public.
Labour have been holding steady over the last few weeks but the Conservatives’ poor showing means their lead has increased to 13 points.
UKIP now stand at 15%, four points ahead of the Liberal Democrats.
It should be noted that the results for the Conservatives are at the extreme end of what other polling companies have recorded over the last week and, as ever, it is important to not view individual polls in isolation.
